Subject: In the Midnight Hour!
Good harmonies throughout
A rough and tumble N.Y.C crowd pushing the limits
The tune selection for this show really works.
I wonder if the lady calling for Johnny b
finally got off toward the end of the evening?
and was she savvy that 'Greatest' signaled request granted..
Given the amount of miles the band would travel in 71
playing the college circuit and all points between
this ends up being a top tier performance for the year.
There is lots of tuning time between songs
with neat banter between band members
and also much back and forth with the crowd.
The beauty of the Fillmore is there is no rush to perform.
I highly recommend any quality recording that is available from 71
I know a lot of Heads like to talk about the best versions
but if you listen to Hard to Handle it is rockin the entire year.
Comments about PIG and the keys are right on.
At points he even reminds me of Brent slashing on da blues tunes.
Don't ever want to chant "MORE"
at the end of a smoking night
with the closing of the Fillmore imminent
as Uncle Bobo is feeling the weight of the moment.

clean perfect music, only hard to handle is better on 8/6 71 palladium.

Listen to Jerry’s guitar on a rare electric Dark Hollow, holy sh*t this is holy! And to top it off, Jerry’s harmonizing is always the best and this song is a showcase of that talent. Too bad this was the last time they played it in the next 9 years, a great send-off into the dark hollows of time for this song.
But in total the band is exercising some serious technical execution on this night, crisp and clean playing!

He's no Keith Emerson but the Pig's keyboard chops help lift this 'JBG'.
Obviously you don't listen to Dead shows just to hear Pig's keyboards on Chuck Berry covers but this example is indicative of the wholesale improvement of this version compared to previous copies. Also thanks Charlie for replacing the audience patch in "Me and Bobby McGee" in said previous copies with a new seamless sbd patch.
Summary: monster upgrade of monster show.
Keep on Truckin'
